Doesn't this picture just make you feel warm all over? The key here is wicker furniture, wood paneling, and white trim. And a glass of iced tea ...
A canopy always adds a touch of tropical. I love how this one is structured and tied around the posts. Beautiful! A sisal rug is another great touch you can make in your room.
Linen & nubby fabrics have a tropical feel. As do plantation blinds, which is why I chose this picture. (Actually, that is a lie - I just REALLY want that chaise!)
Another example of using a grass cloth on a feature wall. Accenting it with some rustic pottery helps make this look organic instead of beachy.
Yeah - I got nothing on this one. I just love the bright green porch! It makes me smile.
Carved wooden lamps are another great way to add an island feel.
